Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is truly a well-illustrated and beautiful book.After buying and recieving it I found it to be a book about an exhibit.I expected to be absorbed into the detailed Glamour of European Royal Life, There are amazing photos and objects in the book.As a Junior Historian I guess I wanted more, however it is a Beautiful book, and well worth adding to a collection or Library filled with other books on European Royalty and their Lives....
